Scot MacDonald
GRANTS OPEN FOR HUNTER COMMUNITY GROUPS
28th Sep 2018

Community organisations in the Hunter looking to build new or upgrade current facilities are encouraged to apply for funding from the NSW Liberal National Government’s Infrastructure Grants program.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Hunter Scot MacDonald MLC said applications could be submitted for sport and recreation, arts and culture, and emergency preparedness from Tuesday 2nd October.

“This funding can make a real difference to the local community, either by providing new or improved sporting or cultural facilities, or by protecting local residents in emergency situations,” Mr MacDonald said.

“This year will see the NSW Government complete its commitment to invest $50 million into community infrastructure projects across NSW in four years.”     

The funding is provided through the Clubgrants Category 3 program, which receives a contribution from registered clubs’ gaming machine profits to benefit local communities.

Funding ranges are $50,000 to $200,000 for arts and culture, $10,000 to $200,000 for emergency preparedness and $100,000 to $300,000 for sport and recreation.  

Applications for the final round of Infrastructure Grants for 2018 will close Monday 22nd October.
